International Norms and Future Peacebuilding
This chapter explores the changing international norms and practices of peacebuilding as an expression of international intervention in fragile, failed, or postconflict states and societies. It briefly reviews the discussion of norms in the scholarship of IR theory, and then considers peacebuilding at the level of global governance—in the practices of the UN and in the critiques of peacebuilding as a neoliberal statebuilding project. The analysis addresses how these norms and related practices have taken shape at the operational level of peacebuilding, in international policy choices and practices; in particular, the proposal, dissemination and negotiation of the R2P as a new doctrine that (arguably) has become accepted as an international norm.
